Title: Application of microwave energy to post-calcination treatment of high-level nuclear wastes

Abstract

Two potential applications of microwave energy for treatment of high-level nuclear waste are drying of a pelleted waste and vitrifying of a calcined waste. Tests showed pellet drying by microwave energy to be superior to drying by conventional methods. Vitrification by microwave energy gave a uniform glass in less time than radiant energy. 9 figures, 4 tables.
